NASA Assists California Agriculture

The NASA Earth Exchange, a platform for scientific collaboration, knowledge sharing and research for the Earth science community, is one of the resources helping California growers prepare for the ongoing drought.

As more drought looms, satellites are providing California growers with valuable information.

Ocean tides provide insight toward the onset of rain and snow, and NASA satellite information provided by the Terrestial Observation and Prediction System, NASA Earth Exchange and Satellite Irrigation Management Support is in the process of helping farmers prepare for the upcoming drought as warmer weather approaches.

These technologies are providing California growers with valuable information such as irrigation management, monitoring crop development, and on-farm water use efficiency. The California Department of Water is using NASA’s information to notify irrigation managers of water requirements for their crops as the drought season draws nearer.
